    Does anyone NOT have a Facebook like me?
    Now everyone assumes I have one and are shocked when I tell them I don't. (and don't want one either)

    I am on Facebook, it is where my kids and grandchildren are so it is easy to keep in contact, we are in three different states.

    Well, I'm addicted!
    I have a 20, 18 and 16 year old.....so if I'm gonna be part of their lives I had to get FB. lol They don't even email anymore. Messaging them privately is the way to reach them. (that and texting which I know do as well...even upgraded my phone so it'd be easier on me LOL)

    I have one because I "friended" a niece who asked me to join.

    I'm not any too sure about it now because suddenly strangers keep popping up. Finally discovered that one man was an Illinois
    Step-GD's boy friend. Another lady showed up, she was a letter writer from another forum and I'd never met her, but it gave her name and picture. I'm not at all happy about all these people having access to my email address book, and don't quite know how to get out of it. I'll have to ask my son or one of the teens in the family~~

    I am on facebook. I rarely write, I just read. It is the only way to keep up with extended family. They stopped e-mailing and started Facebook. I only excess thru my computer not phone.

    You have to go in and adjust your privacy and security settings. Any teen in the family should be able to help you out.

    I have mine set so that people can find me but they can't see much (or so it should be) - just enough to figure out that it's me. I did that because I've actually reconnected with several high school classmates after 25 years - that has been kind of a cool aspect of it.
    I do get friends of friends requesting friendship and I basically check out their page or see if we have more friends in common (being a Navy wife this actually happens a lot to me) I do not "friend" anyone I do not know or that I do not have mutual friends with unless I do actually know them in real life.
    I am actually in touch with and "chat" with family I haven't talked to in years - cousins and extended family. It really is nice to be able to reconnect with so many friends from over the years and family that live in other parts of the country (and world!)

    the games are extremely addicting. One of my 2011 "goals" is going to be to cut back on my FB and computer time in general. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one. ;-)

    I have a facebook account but seldom use it. My youngest DD and her boyfriend use it quite often. I have many co-workers who are on it several times daily.

    I don't have a facebook account. I'd like to see some of the pics of nieces and nephews and grandson, but I'm a bit of a dinosaur. I don't like putting info out there too much. My life bores me, so I don't think boring everyone I know would be very much fun for them! My DIL says she'll get me into the 21st century yet, but I'm fighting it tooth and nail...while I still have a couple of teeth left.

    I have it, read but do not post much. I find it hard to navigate around the site and do what I want.

    Wow, I thought I was the only one that doesn't have FB. My 25 yr. old daughter has tried to convince me that I was. lol
    I do understand wanting to keep in touch with children, especially out of state. It is a great way of communication.
    Hey all, thanks for the responses so far.
    You are all wonderful!

    Don't have it and don't want it. My family and friends are all on it but I do not want any part of it. It gets way to personal for me. To much information given and that sometimes causes trouble.

    IMO, Facebook access is almost out of control. No way I would feel comfortable putting anything on it. Besides that, the company has the legal right to resell any particular information or 'repackaged' information that anyone posts. The convenience isn't worth it to me. As anything else, I would advise reading the privacy statement in detail, then decide if it's worth the exposure of your life.

    I have it because it's easier and faster than email, and most of my friends/family use it. I do have privacy settings and I don't put any personal information on there. There are many warnings online regarding the do's and don'ts of FB use and I try to follow those.
